Remove odors with a diluted solution of chlorine bleach and water. If odor persists, wipe 
interior with a cloth saturated with vanilla extract, then leave in cloth in cooler overnight.

Cooler Tips and Advice  

Using two coolers is the best arrangement. Use one for beverages that will be opened 
more frequently and one for foodstuffs that will be opened less often. Food will stay 
fresh much longer packed in a separate cooler. Match cooler sizes to the size of the 
group and the amount of time you plan to be out. If you’re camping, a 54-quart cooler 
should provide ample room to store food for two or three people for two days, especially 
if meals prepared later in your outing are made from canned or dried ingredients  
Packing a cooler to maximize efficiency doesn’t require a degree in rocket science, but 
a good game plan and common sense will ensure that goods stay fresh and ice lasts as 
long as possible. Try these helpful tips:  

•  Prechill drinks and foods – Ice lasts longer when items in a cooler are already 

cold. For instance, a six-pack or a gallon of liquid at room temperature melts 
about 1 1/2 pounds of ice just to cool down. Prechill coolers by placing a few ice 
cubes inside an hour or so before loading your cold beverages and food.  

•  Put ice in last – Cold air travels down. Load cans and bottles first, then cover with 

ice for maximum cold-keeping.  

•  Use crushed or block ice – Crushed ice cools food and drinks fast; block ice lasts 

longer. As an alternative to block ice, prefreeze drinking water or juices in clean 
milk jugs. They’ll help keep foods cold and provide a handy source of cold 
beverages as they thaw.
